Guys, I am exhausted after today’s FFF. So this is going to be short and sweet — either plan on staying home tomorrow night or setting your DVRs, because the Warren Ellis-scripted G.I. Joe: Resolute cartoon airs tomorrow at midnight (EST) on Adult Swim.
Most or all of the whole damn thing has come online — you can watch them at AdultSwim.com — this very second, and they are fucking awesome. Seriously. You know how we all complain that so-and-so raped our childhoods? Well, this is the exact opposite. I used this line in my Twitter, but I stand by it — G.I. Joe: Resolute is like Warren Ellis made tender, passionate love to our childhoods, and he had an enormous dick. If you don’t believe me, watch episode 2 of Resolute above. If you still don’t agree, then I weep for you.
Oh, Iron Man: Adolescent Adventures or whatever the hell it’s called premieres on NickToons tonight at 7 pm.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
